economy. when we look at where we are, e are still seeing growth. it is not just that right now. in america, the people have always had a healthy skepticism bout their government. they read about the irs abuse of power, and targeting americans for their political beliefs. they wonder about what happened in benghazi where americans were killed. they see report the journalists had their phones monitored, and they asked this could happen to them. they are -- in washington there as been no accountability. only arrogance of power that puts politics ahead of doing the right thing. when government is out of control, and also the people it is supposed to serve, it makes it harder to do our work. to grow our economy. the arrogance we are seeing in the same arrogance that has left our economy plodding along. after four years of watching -- washington knows best, our economy is recovering at the slowest rate since world war ii. the growth numbers barely move. unemployment stays about the same. we are told not to read much into it. experts call this condition the new normal. some even argue
